About Us

Who is Trans* Recht e.V.?

We are an initiative of trans* activists and their supporters from Bremen and the surrounding area. Trans* Recht e.V. was founded in 2013 to fight the discrimination of trans* people in law, in health care and in society.

We are a registered association (e.V.) that is recognized as non-profit. You can find more information about our non-profit status here.

What do we stand for?

We believe that everyone has the right to define their own gender and that neither judges, nor medicine or psychology can do this for others. With our work, we are committed to the emancipation of trans* people and the depathologization of being transgender. We deliberately use the terms trans* and transgender to distinguish ourselves from a medical vocabulary.

Everyone is trans* according to their own self-perception!
